talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Toddler analysis

Growing up at my house, one of the joys of someone having a birthday included birthday cake and milk for breakfast all around on the following day. We had some cake left over from last night's invented bee cut-up cake, and that's exactly what Nora was offered this morning.

There were two smaller pieces of devil's food cake available, and most of a 9" pan of yellow cake still in the pan. I put one of the pieces of chocolate cake in front of Nora, but that's not what interested her most.

She pointed at the pieces in the pan for some pint-sized analysis. "Fiona!" she exclaimed while pointing at the smaller chunk of chocolate cake. Apparently she wished to reserve that particular remainder for her sister.

Next, she pointed to the yellow cake and bellowed, "Big!" I prefer to think that in this case she was explaining the size of the cake and not the size of the eater.
